Mindful snacking

Paying close attention to our snacking routine can help increase nutrient intake and cut unnecessary calories. It’s a smart idea to use the USDA’s MyPlate as a tool for food group focus for meals and snacking. Recognizing nutrient-dense food groups that you're lacking at mealtime can be an excellent choice for snacking options. 
Portion control is another smart focus at snack time. Too much of any food, even a healthy one, isn’t good for you! Checking the food label is a great way to be aware of serving size and nutrient intake of the food you're eating. 
Quick, easy, and inexpensive snacking ideas.
